Last week, the 28th of January, Shortways participated to the Oracle Partner Day! As its name suggests, Oracle invited all its partners, integrators and software editors to discuss about Cloud and digital transformation!

Now Oracle Gold Partner since January, it has been a great pleasure for Shortways to participate in this day. That was the occasion, for Shortways’ team, to discover the latest trends of Oracle in terms of Cloud and SaaS.

The morning started with a presentation of Oracle University, an entity of Oracle which proposes training courses for administrators but also for users of Oracle Cloud solutions. Our virtual assistant, Shortways was presented like a complementarity to Oracle University Services by diffusing, contextually, the training courses into their applications (Sales Cloud, Oracle HCM, Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle EPM Cloud ..).

Remi Baudot, Principal Sales Consultant EMEA of Oracle University explained during the presentation that Shortways & Oracle University represent a solution of “Continuous learning” also called on-the-job-learning: providing Oracle University content into Oracle applications thanks to Shortcuts, to have the right information at the right time that is to say when the users need it!

During the plenary session which took place after, Brieuc Courcoux, France Partners Leader, explained the increase of the software market, making a focus on the Cloud applications. In fact, Cloud is growing 8,5 x than overall market. As a consequence, Oracle accelerates the development of its SaaS applications.

The afternoon was divided into different workshops presented by Oracle business teams, around these 5 following themes:

–  Modernization of the finance and HR functions
